Rodanthe House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths (Sleeps 14-15)

Modern and comfortable home with panoramic and stunning beach and ocean views, located just across a small road from the beach and an inviting fishing pier, in the picturesque town of Rodanthe on Hatteras Island on North Carolina's Outer Banks.

This home has all the amenities one would look forward to in a desirable, upscale vacation home, such as expansive decks to take in the ocean view from, nine foot ceilings, a pool and hot tub, a recreation room with an 8 foot pool table and card table, 8 flat screen TVs, cement fiberboard siding, a jetted jacuzzi, wainscoting, tile and hardwood, a fireplace, and great furnishings throughout, including upscale Polywood furniture on the decks.

The best part however is the panoramic ocean and beach views from every level. This home has better oceanviews than many oceanfront homes. Even the rear deck has great oceanviews. The sound views are also very fine, and the beach is just steps away. This is the vacation home you have been looking for.

We vacationed there in 2012 and were very impressed with the house.

The first level has a large tiled recreation room as well as a large bedroom and bath. The second level has three bedroom suites, one of which has a jetted tub, and another has a walk in shower for easy access, as well as a large deck. The top level has a very large great room with built-ins, a large flat screen TV and hardwood flooring, as well as a king master suite, a hall bathroom a kitchen and a dining room area. Naturally the view from the third level deck are amazing.

About Morry El Badry

I live in Maine with my wife, four children and pets. We love going on family vacations to the Outer Banks.

Morry El Badry purchased this house in 2012

Why Morry El Badry chose Cape Hatteras

This is the kind of property renters are looking for. It is essentially on the beach, modern and in great shape.

What makes this house unique

The fishing pier, beach and ocean are all right there.

Wonderful Semi Oceanfront Home with Unobstructed Oceanviews
average rating of 4.766667 based on 30 reviews

Great location with plenty of room for 6 adults & 6 children

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the location of the house. We spent most of our mornings sitting on the third floor deck watching the sun rise. Several safety issues- right side railing on the third floor deck is loose as well as some of the vertical slats, our 2 yr. old grandson was able to put his head through the slats that are loose. There is also a receptacle cover missing in the 2nd floor bedroom that is on the side of the washer & dryer. If safety issues are corrected, would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: I take safety issues very seriously. If this guest had called these issues to the attention of my caretakers, or to me, they would have been taken care of promptly. Now that I know, I will have them taken care of.

Overall pleased with the property but needs some kitchen updating.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week long stay with all of our adult children and their young families with a total 10 guests. The location is outstanding with easy access to a great beach. The weather was a bit hot and humid, but between the ocean water and the nice cool pool we were more than comfortable. This is a very kid-friendly house in terms of things to do and easy beach access. It was also great to have individual bedrooms and bathrooms for all the couples. The large living space on the third door is the social center of the home with a great view - we spent many hours enjoying our family in this space.

The only downsides to the home were centered on the kitchen. While the space is large and accommodating, the pots and pans were substandard and the cutlery could use an update. You frequently run into this with rental properties that get a lot of use, but at this price point I think property should be better stocked. We also found it very strange that the stove top fan vented directly back into the room instead of up through an outside vent. This caused some excess cooking odors and you can't exactly open the doors during the summer due to the temperatures. Also the two dryers vented into each other (incredibly strange) and one of the dryer vents was totally non functional (we found it on the ground with the mesh all gone).

None of this got in our way of having a good time as there are many, many positives about the property. The house did lend itself to a great time! The pool was fun, we never did use the hot tub :). The location is wonderful.

A nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Would be 5 stars except the hot tub was not functioning properly for half the week, and the cable was out. Also, one of the bedrooms was missing the tv remote and although the maintenance man said he'd bring a new one, he never did. Otherwise, it was perfect. Right on the ocean. Beautiful!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments, good and bad. I would like to clarify that Charter has recently changed to all digital signal and in the transition, many, if not nearly all, homes have experienced repeated issues. We have been diligently working on an issue that is largely out of our hands. As for the hot tub, my maintenance people say it was on "sleep" mode. My people are usually extremely conscientious, and as you liked the place, I hope you will give us a chance to prove it.

Perfect Beachfront Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time on Spring Break with our family. The house was huge and well-equipped. We could've invited another family to join us! Each of our kids had their own room and bathroom (spoiled!), but we spent most of our time on the 3rd floor, playing games, watching movies and basketball, enjoying the view of the beach out of one side of the house and the sound on the other. In fact, I watched the sun rise over the Atlantic every morning and then the sun set over the sound every night! The house is advertised as "semi oceanfront," but it really is right on the water with just a street, but nothing else, in front of it. We sat out on the deck every day and soooo enjoyed the view, the sound of the waves and the smell of the ocean. It was the beginning of the season, so everything was very quiet, which we loved. It was too cold to swim in the ocean and the pool had not been opened for the season yet (we didn't know that), but we did use the hot tub several times. (I appreciated that Shore Details came mid-week to check the chemicals and ensure it was clean!) The house was SUPER clean, and I'm sort of OCD, so that was great. (We brought our sweet dogs, and knowing that the house was dog-friendly, I was a little worried about the cleanliness, but it was immaculate!) There were a couple of little things that needed to be maintained, but we called Shore Details and they sent someone over immediately. Loved the TWO sets of washers/dryers! Beds were comfy.

Unfortunately, because it was the beginning of the season, some of the restaurants nearby were closed, but we had stocked up on groceries (Food Lion in Nags Head or Avon are close and reasonable) so cooked and used the grill on the deck to prepare meals. Kitchen was well-stocked (even had martini glasses!), so we were able to do a lot of cooking. The only real downside about the kitchen was the knives. Since we were doing a lot of cooking, we really needed to be able to slice/dice, and the knives made it difficult. Would've been nice to have even one good knife, but that's being really nitpicky! Otherwise, it had all the necessary pots/pans and utensils.One night, we ordered seafood from Surf's Up in Avon. It was awesome! Highly recommended! We loved visiting the Wright Memorial near Kitty Hawk, and we drove up to Corolla but couldn't drive on the beach because no 4WD.

We've rented houses all over the country - beach, mountains, etc. This is a GREAT rental home.

Our New Years vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the house right opposite the Rodanthe Pier. The weather was very warm for winter and there was a lot of people around, almost like the spring time. We come to the Outer Banks often at this time of year, this year was really different!!!

The house was terrific and was just as was promised. We did miss sitting around the fireplace on a cold night though, the weather was too warm, however the walks on the beach were very special.

All in all I would definitely recommend this house to any of our friends, and as you need to know you are about 18.5 miles from the nearest Food Lion south, and 24 miles from life in the north, so bring anything you need before you arrive! (but we kind of like this anyway!)..

Absolutely breathtaking – no regrets staying at this lovely establishment

  • 4 of 5

Let me explain the 4-star rating. When we first arrived at the home, check in was easy and all was well until we realized that there were no sheets for the beds, and no bath towels for us to use. We arrived the day before Thanksgiving, and although we left a message with the agency overseeing the property for the owner, we never got a call back, so we had to drive about 45 minutes to the Wal-Mart in Nags Head to pick up sheets and towels for the home. And for this incident, 1 start was deducted. BUT please do not this isolated incident deter you from booking this home. Our brood consisted of an infant, a young child, my autistic brother, our adult son, my husband and my mom. And we felt comfortable in the home, and the layout was perfect for our family. The house is ideally located. The beach is steps away; the pier is also steps away. We were able to sit out on the deck for breakfast and lunch. The sun rises and sun sets were breathtaking. And on the weekends, you can see the surfers try their luck with the beach waves. There is surround sound in the living room, so you can enjoy a rented movie or listen to music from your iPhone or iPad since there is a dock ideally located between the living room and kitchen. The kitchen was well equipped, and we were able to cook our Turkey dinner for Thanksgiving. The front right side burner was not working, but the rest of the oven worked fine. The laundry machines were a bit outdated, and it took a bit longer to get the clothes cleaned and especially dried. The dryer on the right particularly took longer to dry our clothes, but since we weren’t going anywhere we just went with the flow of things. All the rooms in the house had fantastic view of the beach. I can honestly tell you that this house will not disappoint with the views and ability to listen to the ocean all day long. Surprisingly, the beds were pretty comfortable. AND!!!! If you ever get to see the movie Nights in Rodanthe with Diane Lane and Richard Gere, the home used for the movie was literally 5 minutes away from this home. You won’t go wrong with renting this home. We experienced a few hiccups, but since we are regular travelers, we didn’t allow it to ruin what was one of the best Thanksgiving experiences we have ever had as a family. We will totally be back at the OBX next year for Thanksgiving. Hope this review has been helpful!

Owner's Response: I am glad my guests enjoyed many, and nearly every, aspect of their stay. As for deducting one star for sheets not being on the beds, in my defense, the website makes clear in more than one place that linens are not provided, except by special arrangement, between November and mid-April. This is so guests will have the option of keeping costs low by bringing their own. I will admit though that in my correspondence with these guests I didn't specifically mention this, which I usually do, to try to avoid confusion. I have modified my directions and instructions that I give to each guest before arrival to include a reminder about linens being an option in the off season.
